    Catridge filter cleaning

    Hi, I was cleaning my filter after about a year and noticed straps around filter came off. Should I be need to replace the filters? Attached picture. Also, that picture was taken after the cleaning. Stains in the picture aren't gone.

    Nah, I've noticed no adverse affect from the paper straps coming off. I've seen much filters worse than yours.

    the stains are from Iron. I've seen filters completely coated in that. Those get replaced

    I'm not sold that those are iron stains. Do you have city water?

    How old are the filters?

    You can use zip ties to replace the straps.

    Thanks for the replies! Yes, city water. Filters are about 3 years old.
